Forum: GratefulDead Subject: first La Bamba jam

A couple weeks ago on the Taper's Section on dead.net, Lemieux posted an uncirculating studio jam from Feb '66 - primitive garage-band Dead - it starts with a dull blues jam, then goes into what he calls Good Lovin' - but from Weir's playing, I think it's clearly La Bamba - either way, pretty neat - then they go into another blues jam which sounds like an early Hurts Me Too, which fades.

(One thing that perplexes me, along with the Viola Lee rehearsals, is why they were taping studio rehearsals? If they didn't have something ready to record, I wonder why they got studio time in the first place.)

11-11-70 is a great show. Most people don't listen to it since the sound is so bad.....but there is a La Bamba there inside the Good Lovin'.

Youre right. I streamed that a couple weeks ago and catalogued it as a Good Lovin' jam, but I listened again and it definately evolves into the La Bamba riff.

I thought the band often rehearsed during the period between '66 and '68...
